Next time you're in New York, you can go on the Dylan Thomas Walking Tour around Greenwich Village. Sure, the guy was Welsh, but he spent a big chunk of his life in the Big Apple, and even died there.

And if you're willing to schlep all the way to Wales, you can check out Dylan's house, including his awesomely tiny writing shed, on a guided biographical tour of Laugharne.

Perfectionist? Maybe, just a little. Dylan Thomas often wrote over 100 drafts of a poem until he thought it was finished. That's either brilliant or just plain crazy. (Source.)
